Hard to pronounce, easy to enjoy.

The Irish words “Barr an Uisce” literally mean “above the water.” Pronounced “bar on ishka,” if you feel like torturing yourself. Barr an Uisce is also the Irish name given to Barraniskey, which is a town land set in the heart of the County of Wicklow, on the East Coast of Ireland. The Irish word “Uisce “ or “water” in English, was used during the time Irish monks first distilled what we now know to be Whiskey. They called it “Uisce Beatha” meaning “Water of Life.” Damn straight it is! Known as the Garden of Ireland, Wicklow represents all that is stunning in the Irish countryside.

The founder of “Barr an Uisce” Irish Whiskey, Ian Jones, comes from a small village just outside of Barraniskey. Ian’s family has a long history in the Spirit business. The ambition of Barr An Uisce is to celebrate all the fine things Ireland has to offer while honoring the times gone by. We love Ireland, we love Whiskey and perhaps most importantly – we love Irish Whiskey. To say we are excited about what the distillery has to offer is a bit of an understatement. Just a bit.

We’ve established that the stuff has the DNA to succeed. But how does it taste like? Light, smooth and approachable. Thoroughly enjoyable. Barr An Uisce Wicklow Rare Small Batch is a blend of 80% grain and 20% ten-year-old malt. Matured in first fill bourbon barrels for four years and finished in Oloroso casks for six months, we can characterize this Whisky as your classic everyday dram. If you’re looking for a gateway into the wonderful world of Irish Whiskey, we’ve found a great place to start.

Irish Whiskey became the most renowned Whiskey and most popular Spirit in the 19th century after the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
Whiskey producers lose on average about 2% of their stock a year to angels' share. For Jameson, the biggest one of the Irish Whiskey brands, it means 29 thousand bottles going into the air (literally) every day!
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
Irish Whiskey has many varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ (or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known). Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
